How do I earn money with my song and demo track?
BuyDemoTracks is a unique new service that promotes your song to potential recording artists, while at the same time earning you passive income by monetizing your song demos, soundtracks, multi-track stems, recording rights, and more!
- 100% of your songwriter royalties (keep your copyright ownership!)
- 100% of your publishing royalties (if applicable)
- 50% royalty from all sales on BuyDemoTracks.com (we track and payout all royalties on a 60-day schedule)
This allows you to earn up to $247.50 per sale of your soundtrack on our platform, in addition to traditional royalties! Click here to learn more about how songwriters get paid.
How much does it cost to list my song on BuyDemoTracks?
You’ll pay a one-time fee to upload each song to the service (or take advantage of bulk discounts or optional unlimited subscription), after that, you receive 50% from all sales of your track on the site. Above that, you’ll maintain full ownership of your song and music, and receive all songwriting royalties if your song gets recorded. Check out our available packages here.
What does the process look like?
After you purchase an upload pack, you will receive an email within 5 minutes that directs you on how to upload your music. You will be given a Dropbox link where you will upload the song and soundtrack, and that’s it! We will take care of adding the song to the website, making it available for purchase, and configuring your songwriter account to receive royalties.
Do I need a professional demo?
What if I have co-writers?
If you have sales from your soundtrack on the site, you’ll get a report on that with your payment. Whoever has the investment in the soundtrack itself would be entitled to that commission. Of course, if you’ve been compensated by the co-writer for the track, you’ll have a report on your earnings and are encouraged to pay any co-writers out of your royalties once received.
Do you sell my song?
No, BuyDemoTracks.com does NOT sell your song on the site. That remains yours 100%, so you and any co-writers retain all songwriter royalties and will track and process those as usual. We are only helping you earn passive income through the soundtrack, while at the same time promoting the song itself.
